    Unforgettable experience for young and old. The dolphins are just magical. Our guide was awesome too! So much information, all questions were answered - including about the life of the dolphins, environmental protection (plastic was fished out of the sea during our trip), how to deal with the dolphins (they are neither fed nor touched etc.) The trip by boat was also a highlight and the extensive observation of the animals was followed by the return journey along the cave-rich coast with further interesting information from the bird kingdom about the caves as well as the settlement and use of the area. At the end there was a sweet surprise (very tasty ;) Very well organized, everything was clearly communicated. Otherwise very friendly, helpful and entertaining. Thank you for this great day!
